    Quick Question: Stone Temple Pilots

    Album: Purple

    Song: 3-way tie: Crackerman, Interstate Love Song, and Heaven & Hotrods


    They've easily been my favorite band since the the first time I heard "Sex Type Thing'" way back in 91/92.
    I've always felt got an unfair rep as Pearl Jam clones early on (which I never heard any more similarities between the two than I did between any other two "Grunge" bands at the time) and later on as druggies (Scott Weiland did have tons of problems - no argument there, but it overshadowed the great music they made).

    Album: Core

    Song: "Wicked Garden" (...... yeah. And thankfully, that truck commercial that used it didn't overplay it like Johnny Cougar John Melancamp John Cougar Melancamp's "Our Country" has been).
    CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(

    Album - Tiny Music.

    Song - Always tough to pick just one song. I'll go with one from Tiny Music - "Big Bang Baby".

    A college roommate got Core when it was fairly new. I'd never heard of them, but I liked it. I eventually got the album the next year when I joined Columbia House. I didn't really keep up with them after that, but I recall hearing their songs on the radio. I eventually got Purple and Tiny Music.... I was surprised at how many songs I already knew when I listened to them. I didn't listen to them a lot though, so whenever I came back to Tiny Music..., I'd be impressed. I'd be thinking "I forgot that all these great songs were on here.

    Back to Core though. I didn't really think of them as Pearl Jam clones. The roommate who got the album is the one who I think pointed this out to me, that three songs in a row on that album seem to imitate three different bands. "Naked Sunday" sounds a bit like Pearl Jam, "Creep" sounds like Kurt Cobain on one of Nirvana's slower songs, and "Piece of Pie" sounds more like Chris Cornell of Soundgarden. I also think that "Wet My Bed" sounds like a spoken word Jim Morrison. Perhaps I also detect the Smithereens or something in some of the songs as well.

    That seems to be a common thought from people that weren't big fans (or semi-casual fans), especially when they see the listing on "Thank You" - their greatest hits album.

    I think for me, I was aware that they had put out more music, but just wasn't sure what songs were from what album. Plus, once I listened to it once or twice, the rest of the songs were in my head. Then I didn't listen to it for a while. When I gave it another listen, the songs were familiar and they all sounded great and I was wondering why I hadn't been listening to this album more. In addition to those songs from the album that made it on Thank You, I also like "Adhesive", "Art School Girl, "Pop's Love Suicide" and "Tumble in the Rough". I'm surprised that last one isn't on Thank You, as that is one I recall hearing on the radio a lot.

    Album: Core

    Song: Sex Type Thing

    I think I like that one because it was my introdution to the group. I remember seeing the video and thinking "what a twisted song". Later in life I won tickets to see STP in concert only to have the show cancelled because of Mr. Weilands "addiction".

    I'll have to go with Album: "Core" Song: "Wicked Garden" though "Plush" is a close second. Really though STP is one of those bands where it's hard to find any song on any album that sucks. You can tell they were heavily influenced by Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith. At least the guys playing the instruments anyways (Wonder what ever happened to the DeLeo brothers?) I hate the comparison to Pearl Jam of which I think were inferior musicians (though they didn't completely suck) Too bad they parted ways with Scott Wieyland. Did anyone see him doing Christmas carols on the Tonite Show last December? It was pathetic.
